  • Q: Could you please advise some colours to complement our deep green base boards?
  • A: 

    I am going to repaint the whole house except the deep green base boards. I will use Resene Woodsman stain for the upstairs. Could you please advise some colours for this and for the trims?

    It is important to use the correct product to re-stain with, to ensure there are no adherence problems. To co-ordinate with the lower parts of the house, consider using Resene Pickled Bean or Resene Nutmeg. For the balcony deck and bars, you might like Resene Bark or Resene Bushtrack.

    The window surrounds and barge boards could be repainted to match the lower portion of the house again, if you had some of that paint still available. Or paint them a lighter, crisper colour to go with the deeper stains suggested above - perhaps Resene Titania or Resene Eighth Lemon Grass. Both of these have a little green in them, which will go well with the downstairs portion of the house.
